In an unexpected twist in the gaming world, the Microsoft Surface team is reportedly taking the reins on the development of the next Xbox device. This revelation comes from Nick Baker, also known as Shpeshal_Nick of the XboxEra Podcast, indicating a significant shift away from the team led by Jason Ronald, the mind behind the Xbox Series X|S.


The transition to the Surface team suggests that Microsoft is possibly eyeing a fresh approach for its next gaming console. Whether it's a traditional console or a venture into the handheld gaming market remains a topic of speculation.
